Shopping List for Jason Todd from The Red Hood Costume & Outfit
If you’re a fan of DC Comics and superhero video games, you must know The Red Hood! He’s been a part of the video game Batman: Arkham Knight, the movie Batman: Under the Red Hood (2010) and many other Batman-inspired media. Let’s take a look at The Red Hood costume – you can choose whether you want to be a mischievous or a heroic version of the character.
Many of you know Robin, Batman’s former right hand, who has been murdered by the evil Joker himself. In Batman: A Death in the Family, we discover Robin has been resurrected and became the new Red Hood! There have been many takes on the character, but Jason Todd, Batman’s “second Robin”, is the most popular one. You can even listen to the way Jensen Ackles voices the character to get to know him!
When we look at his style, we notice that The Red Hood keeps his identity private at all times. Although we know who is behind the costume in some versions of the character, you must stay hidden if you plan to reenact the costume of The Red Hood.
This hero, or a villain, we suppose, is covered in black and red clothing pieces. Naturally, he has a red hood, but some of his other accessories are red as well. You can pick whether you want to use fabric or plastic to cover your face, but make sure you get a bloody shade of red!
Both in comics and video games, The Red Hood is always up for some action. That’s why you should have some mockup guns and weapons on you at all times! We think the trickiest part of cosplaying this character is to learn what his personality is like – since there are so many versions of The Red Hood, you have to pick one and get to know him.
We think this video by Variant Comics gives fantastic insight into who The Red Hood really is, which is perfect for getting to know his mannerisms and moves.
Finally, make sure your outfit is flashy only due to your favorite shade of red – no bold patterns, no make-up or hair decorating. Well, even if you do put some extra effort in front of the mirror, we don’t think anyone will notice it under the striking Red Hood mask.
